February Paleo Challenge winners! Audra S. and Mike R.
Testimonial from February Paleo Challenge Winner, MIKE R.
Id like to start of by saying the paleo challenge is no joke. It was tough to stay on track with it but the results are amazing. I can truly say that paleo is they way to eat and live. My energy level has been at a all time high this month. In the gym all my wod times are going down and i can finally do double unders. The biggest changes I’ve notice since starting the challenge are at home.Tv time is almost at 0 and since I’m having more energy my house has been cleaner then ever and my grads have even shot up. Im not content with just siting relaxing anymore which kind of forces me to study. Which i really needed the help there. Im more then satisfied with my results. This has been the healthiest I’ve ever been and it took a little dedication and eating paleo. It almost seems to simple of eating style to work but it really does with out compromising on taste. I recommend that if you haven’t tried it you need to. You feel 1000 times better at the end of the month and you look just as good as you feel. Im going to stick with the paleo lifestyle. Going back to the junk food and fast-food isn’t even an option now. But don’t take it from me try it yourself and you wont be disappointed.
Testimonial from February Paleo Challenge Winner, Audra S.
I’ve had some personal goals for a while now that I wasn’t putting enough effort into. I knew I needed more veggies in my diet. I wanted to lose weight, and while I work out more than enough to lose weight, I knew my diet was holding me back. I’m also an emotional eater and wanted to gain control over my relationship with food. The paleo challenge in February seemed like a great time to work on each of those goals. This was my second challenge, and I wanted to approach it the right way this time (i.e. not sustain myself on paleo desserts). I went into it with an open mind, focused on achieving my goals, and achieving them is exactly what I did. I have never consistently eaten this many veggies, and I haven’t felt deprived. In 30 days I lost several pounds and inches, and there is no stopping me in the gym. I’ve found that I don’t crave the same crappy foods I used to crave, and my mentality is shifting to “food is fuel” instead of an emotional/stress response. I’ve become more thoughtful and selective with the foods I buy at the grocery store. One of the best results is my confidence. I feel good physically, and I’m proud of myself for making so much progress on my goals. I’m fueling my body with quality food, and seeing my own progress gives me confidence and motivates me to continue on this healthy route.
